My name is Victoria Szmelcer,
I am a qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and I offer counselling and psychotherapy. I hold UKATA Diploma in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy Practice.
I have all the tools and experience a client should be looking for in their therapist. I am able to guide you in order to enable you to make the progress you want and need.
My experience comes from working with clients who worked and have worked with me on a broad range of issues, and also from what I can empathize with through my own experience of having worked in my own personal therapy . I recognize how difficult the process of therapy can be at times but also how rewarding and life changing therapy is once issues are worked through.
Psychotherapeutic Counselling is a form of psychotherapy that is specifically able to work through more deep-rooted difficulties but also with more immediate triggers.
My Area of Expertise
Transactional Analysis as a Tool in Therapy
TA is a talking therapy and it is designed to promote personal growth and personal change that helps individuals to reach their full potential in all aspects of life.
Founded by Eric Berne in the late 1950s TA therapy is based on the theory that each person has three Ego-States: Parent, Adult and Child this is used along with other concepts, tools and models.
The therapist works collaboratively with the individual helping and supporting in recognising worth and value in achieving goals.
